A daemon is a computer program that runs continuously in the background and exists for the purpose of handling periodic service requests that a computer system expects to receive. The daemon computer program forwards the requests to other computer programs or processes as appropriate. Every web server connected to the Internet has an HTTPD (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Daemon) that continuously listens for requests coming in from Web clients and their users.
